TFI International announces US IPO and 2019 financial results

TFI has acquired RRD’s Courier Services business, adding critical mass to an expanding geography and new customers to TForce logistics network.

TFI International has announced the launch of an IPO as well as its 2019 full-year financial results.

The company has announced the launch of a marketed offering of 6m common shares in the United States and Canada, representing TFI International’s initial public offering (IPO) in the United States.

TFI International, already listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol “TFII”, will continue to trade TFI International’s common shares. In connection with the IPO in the United States, TFI International has applied to list its common shares on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbol “TFII.” Trading in TFI International’s shares is expected to commence on the NYSE following the pricing of the offering.

TFI International expects to use the net proceeds from the offering to reduce the amount outstanding under one of its credit facilities, thereby increasing the amount available under the credit facility for future use by TFI International. TFI International may use the credit facility in the future for working capital and general corporate purposes, including potential acquisitions.
